Northern Soul is the story of a youth culture in the 1970’s that changed a generation.
No longer satisfied with the prospect of a small town life and a factory production line, two young boys dream of going to America to discover rare records which will help them become the best DJ’s on the scene. This journey forces them to confront rivalry, violence and drug abuse and their friendship is tested to the limit. This is Northern Soul.
If you were there, you’ll know. If you weren’t there, you’ll wish you had been.
“Beautifully crafted and a wonderful insight to a period of British history”
“Brilliantly captures the amphetamine-fuelled energy and sweat-soaked fervour of 1970s northern England’s soul music scene.”
“This feisty, frequently amusing chronicle of one young man’s journey through the dancehalls of Lancashire nails its time and place.”
